About the IYS Survey
The IYS is a self-report survey administered in school settings and is designed to gather information about a variety of health and social indicators including substance use and perceptions, bullying, school climate, nutrition, and physical activity.
The administration of the IYS has two major goals:
- To supply local data to schools and school districts throughout Illinois
- To provide a scientific estimate of health and social indicators for the state of Illinois
The Will County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition uses the data to help create our initiatives and action plans.
Students in grades 8th, 10th, and 12th grades take the survey in the spring. The deadline to apply is April 30th however we encourage everyone to register early.
